A personal experience of dyslexia

January 30th, 2013

A must watch for anyone who has dyslexia or knows a child who has dyslexia.

Piper Otterbein, a senior at Cape Elizabeth High School, tells her classmates and teachers about her lifelong struggle with dyslexia.

She told them, “All I wanted to do was be in normal classes with you” and described the effort it took her to recognise the letters that spelled her name.

Besides being articulate, the most impressive things I observed were her resilience, her positive outlook and a focus on her strengths.
